SLIDES: joeran.de/oeglobalawards/

To promote the efforts of practioners in the field OER to a wider public, the German OER-Award has been granted for the first time as part of the OER-Festival in February 2016. Elected by a jury of OER experts, there was not only an OER-Award in several educational field, but also in special domains. The second OER-Awards will have been granted in November 2017 following the collaboratively-designed process to identify deserving nominees and winners.
The presentation describes the short history of the German OER-Awards including changes that has been made for the second edition. Next to best practices also the challenges will be discussed. Finally, we will welcome your feedback to improve the process for the 3rd edition of our OER-Awards.

Fostering Open Awareness: Transformation of classroom teaching towards Open Educational Practices in Higher Education
The presentation will discuss the concept of openness as a possibility to transform standard educational practices in higher education towards Open Educational Practices. The authors see the transformation of classroom teaching towards Open Educational Practices (OEP) as a challenge that can be addressed by raising awareness towards openness of all participants within teaching and learning settings in the formal context of higher education. We argue that the implementation and promotion of Open Educational Practices within higher education necessitates a debate that goes beyond a perceived current focus on learning materials (the production of OER) alone. A change of traditional role-relationships between teachers and learners and the emergence of an open learning culture, as a crucial element of this altered relationship, to us appears to be necessary so as to realise the idea of openness and OEP in formal learning contexts. First, we want to address this transformative process with its chances and challenges via a brief introduction of our understanding of open education and OEPs in higher education. Second, we want to introduce a current example of emerging open practices taken from the German context of Hamburg Open Online University (HOOU), a collaborative project of Hamburg’s six public HEIs, as well as the Ministry of Science, Research and Equality and the Multimedia Kontor Hamburg (MMKH). As a conclusion, we then provide an outlook on further steps that ought to be taken to encourage teachers and learners in higher education towards an implementation of open Education.

Changing Minds by Using Open Data
Data is becoming more and more important in society. At Fontys University of Applied Sciences, School of ICT, students get educated to master topics like data analysis, data management and so on. In many cases the data to practice upon are artificially created. Using real life data in some cases is already happening, but these are closed data sets coming from private companies. Inspired by the work of Atenas and Havemann, a study is performed to find out about the side effects of using available open governmental data sets. These side effects consists of contributing to skills like critical thinking when analyzing these data, describing social-economic and cultural patterns in the Netherlands. In the session the approach and results and lessons learned of this (currently running) study will be presented.
